    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y. ) is weighing in on rapper Cardi B’s feud with conservative commentator Tomi Lahren. “Why do people think they can mess with Bronx women without getting roasted?” The lawmaker tweeted. “They act as though our borough hasn’t been perfecting the clapback game since the Sugarhill Gang … y’all just found it on Twitter.”

    We’ve reported many times before about the anti-Semitism in the ranks of the leadership of the national Women’s March organization that’s caused Dems like Debbie Wasserman Schultz and others to walk away from the group. At Saturday’s Women’s March in Washington, DC, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was asked about it, and watch how fast her answer — or something vaguely resembling an answer — pivoted to Donald Trump:

    ... Kennedy added that he wished Republicans in Congress had used a criminal justice reform bill that was passed late Tuesday as leverage to get border wall funding. The bill, which was approved in the Senate by a vote of 87-12, will now head to Trump's desk. Kennedy, who did not support the criminal justice reform legislation, said he thinks the GOP "missed an opportunity here." "My Democratic friends are entitled to have their own positions. They were salivating over this bill and I wish we had tried to get something in return like the border wall. Border walls work,"...

    **SNIP** Four organizations have sued the national Women's March group — led by activists Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour — over efforts to trademark the name, arguing that no entity can own the march or the activism it has inspired. Some groups have sought to rebrand to shed the "Women's March" name and the tumult that comes with it. As they prepare for the third annual Women's March on Saturday, leaders are grappling with the question: What is in a name, and is the name "Women's March" worth fighting for? "There's power in the name because...
  • The BDS Campaign: Anti-Jew Leftists Breaking Federal Anti-Boycott Law

    Big League Politics ^ | January 18, 2019 | Jonathon A Moseley
    Anti-Semites are violating federal law by boycotting Israel and Israeli companies and institutions. Activists in the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, one of the highest-profile global projects of the left, are subject to criminal and financial penalties, including jail time of five years and fines up to $50,000. A U.S. exporter can lose the right to export any products to any country. So why isn’t the U.S. Department of Justice enforcing the anti-boycott laws? President Donald Trump should order the Office of Antiboycott Compliance to come out of cryogenic stasis and get back to work, and order DOJ to...

    Minnesota Democrat criticized for anti-Israel statements, BDS supportHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been hit with a backlash over her decision to assign freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee, despite the Minnesota Democrat’s record of anti-Israel advocacy. The House Republican leadership blasted the decision, citing Ms. Omar’s 2012 tweet saying that Israel had “hypnotized the world” and was guilty of “evil doings,” as well as her support for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. “It is disgraceful that Speaker Pelosi and her Democrat majority gave a coveted seat on the House Foreign Relations Committee to a...

    It appears that the leadership of the Democratic Party has gone completely anti-Israel and is warming up to Jew-hatred. The appointment of Rep. Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee – and the welcome extended to her by the chairman, (former) Israel-supporter Rep. Eliot Engel – confirms that the Democrats' big tent now extends to those who believe that Jews in Israel wield magical power to "hypnotize" non-Jews into acquiescence to their "evil." Omar was triumphant yesterday on her appointment to the plum committee: Ilhan Omar ✔@IlhanMN I finally have committee assignments and I am excited 1st choice- House...

    The Wall Street Journal reports Muslims lobbied Twitter to silence the voice of journalist Laura Loomer. As WND reported, Loomer recently chained herself to Twitter headquarters after the social-media giant banned her. The Journal explained Twitter invited a number of outside groups to help it decide who should be banned after criticism for not policing its content. “That solution is creating a new set of problems—public fights, complaints and legal battles,” the paper said. Loomer, described as a conservative Jewish activist, said she didn’t know until recently that outside groups and individuals had privately lobbied Twitter executives to remove her...

(AP Photo/Jim Mone) WASHINGTON — A newly elected congressperson from Minnesotta who spoke out against boycotts of Israel during her campaign now says she supports the BDS movement.

    the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board opened a formal investigation of her after reviewing evidence of several violations. Omar has also made, and defended, anti-Semitic comments as direct and vicious as any spoken by a U.S. politician in a generation. In 2016, an anonymous writer on SomaliSpot.com published verified photos and Minnesota state records suggesting that Rep. Omar is a serial felon and fraudster. Since then, the additional evidence discovered to back these claims -- and the absence of contradictory evidence -- are almost as remarkable as Minnesota media's refusal to lift a finger investigating her for two years. Allegations against...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s first speech from the House floor has set a minor record with C-SPAN. Ocasio-Cortez slammed the Trump Administration over the partial government shutdown in her remarks. A C-SPAN tweet of her nearly four-minute speech garnered 1.16 million views in a little more than 12 hours, setting a record for the most-watched Twitter video from the outlet of any remarks by a House member, according to a tweet from Howard Mortman, C-SPAN’s communications director. By Friday morning, it had surpassed 2.3 million views, with more than 13,000 retweets and over 46,000 likes.

    Three days before the 2019 Women’s March, organizers announced they had moved to a smaller venue as the third annual march confronts bad weather, a government shutdown and a dramatic drop of support on the left. The Women’s March said Wednesday it had changed its starting point to Freedom Plaza at the corner of 14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue — instead of the National Mall — with plans to march “past the Trump Hotel.” The Women’s March said it had been required to relocate by the National Park Service due to snow and accused the agency of pressuring the group...

    – As the Women’s March continues to suffer defections over its leaders’ associations with Louis Farrakhan, the controversial preacher’s Nation of Islam has been hitting back, accusing “Jewish and white women” of trying to undermine the movement ahead of its planned march this weekend. In racially-charged columns, the Nation of Islam organ The Final Call has been slamming prominent critics who have raised concerns about anti-Semitism and called on the Women’s March leaders to resign. In doing so, the writers have accused “white women,” among other things, of supporting the oppression of blacks, and of historical complicity in rapes and...

This development comes amid accusations of anti-Semitism within the movement’s leadership, causing many organizations to drop their support of the this year’s march, scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 19.

    Women’s March national co-chair Tamika D. Mallory’s attempt to tamp down anti-Semitism concerns prior to next weekend’s march may have backfired. Ms. Mallory refused to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in an appearance Monday on ABC’s “The View” under tough questioning from co-host Meghan McCain, who asked about Mr. Farrakhan’s past comments on “wicked Jews, “false Jews,” and homosexuality. “We did not make those remarks,” said Ms. Mallory. “What I will say to you is that I don’t agree with many of Minister Farrakhan’s statements.” Asked about his remarks about Jewish people, Ms. Mallory repeated, “As I said,...
